Even if you don't like seafood, there's something for the carnivore or vegetarian. The view is really nice--overlooking the water. My Mediterranean wrap was delicious, however the portions were a little on the large side. My husband ordered the turkey panini and he seemed to really enjoy it. This is a great stop if you're in Woods Hole for the... More

Parking anyplace in Woods hole is a problem so park right next door for $3 . The selection is somewhat limited but adequate. Food is generally tasty but a little overpriced. Somewhat trendy and hence the overpriced aspect.

In the sea of overpriced restaurants in Falmouth, Fishmonger's does an ok job at holding it's own. Clam chowder had great flavor, but barely any clams and just a few potatoes. More of a chowder bisque. Caesar salad was very good with an oil based dressing. Surf and Turf with mushroom risotto- steak tips were very tender and cooked perfectly,... More

Had awesome dinner here while staying in WH for a few nights. Fishmonger's was definitely the best dinner we had during our stay. The service was great and the vibe was very local/homie. The food, I had the cod, was well presented, fresh, and tasted delicious. Beer on tap variety was adequate and I would def. recommend this spot as... More

Love to walk Water Street in Woods Hole. The Fishmonger restaurant is right at The Draw Bridge. Lots of people and boat watching. Very good food! Love the breakfast!!

In a touristy place like Woods Hole, where travelers pass through quickly for the ferry, you can't necessarily find a good place to eat, but Fishmonger has consistently been a very good place since I first came here decades ago. No outdoor seating, but good, fresh fish, good salads, good beer, good desserts at prices that are not cheap but... More

This restaurant, right by the Drawbridge in Woods Hole, has a fairly varied menu and everything we tried (on a number of visits) was good! You get nice views of the water and can watch ships coming in and out of Eel Pond under the drawbridge. Fun! They have cool T-shirts too!

The food was well prepared and arrived quickly. We stopped because as a family with a toddler, we don't always have the flexibility to delay a meal to look for a better value. We were well aware that eating in Wood's Hole would be a pricey proposition but it was still a shock to spend 45 dollars on a sandwich... More

We checked in a little early to head over to MV and we chose to find a place to grab a quick bite to eat. We found FishMonger to be open (off-season) so we went in and grab a seat at the bar. My wife ordered the clam chowda and I had the black bean chili. Both were tasty and... More

We both tried a drink off the menu. French Toast Martini and a Kentucky Buck. These were both very good. We were able to talk with the locals and enjoyed our visit.
